    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    I found this paragraph very interesting...

    //Still, the authors also recognize limitations with this approach, since many defensive incidents are never reported by victims, or when they are, never get published. In fact, the overwhelming majority of the successful self-defense outcomes are those where the defendants’ guns are presented but never fired.//


    Sounds like in some cases, brandishing a weapon actually saved the day huh..

    This was really good. I am going to download the full report from the Cato Institute website.
